This is a poncho I crochet-ed up for Ruhi. I found this lovely pattern at the website Le Monde de Sucrette, written by a generous and super-talented crocheter and artist named Angie.
Ruhi's poncho turned out so cute, I did another one for Cousin Isha. And right now, I'm halfway through another one for Cousin Amiya.
Since then, I have received many compliments. I've also been told I should get this done for sale. In fact, I have already received custom orders.
So I guess you know what I shall be busy with the next few weeks...
A fellow jewelry artisan friend of mine has suggested I exhibit at an artisans' fair at Clapham High Street. I told her I'll have to see how fast the crocheting can get... ;)
Truth be told, I experimented with another poncho style, for an adult, in a lovely aran wool blend in a graphite hue - a significantly more sane colour scheme. ;)
It turned out so super gorgeous, I gifted it to my sister-in-law. I have no pics of that one. But I do have a custom order from her friend who saw her in it... ;D
